One last day

Ginger’s had a rough week and she’s letting us know it’s time. We have a vet coming out to the house tomorrow at 4pm. I’m so grateful for that option as she’ll be happier not having to get in the car, and Roxy and Rico will be able to say goodbye. They’ve been especially snuggly with her the past few days. We’ve stayed in and watched movies all day and we’re doing pizza night now in hopes she’ll try to take a bite or two. <3

One whole year in Alaska!

It’s been ONE WHOLE YEAR since the pack arrived in Alaska! Mom and dad were pretty much freaking out the entire time, especially since we couldn’t fly up until a few days later due to a glitch with the airlines. But the puppers rocked that 5000+ mile 2-day trip from Puerto Rico to Alaska! A local boarding kennel did the airport pickup and kept them safe and happy until we arrived and headed straight to our new home. We had an air mattress, air sofa, and pretty much nothing else for almost 2 months until our stuff arrived, but we were together!

Rethinking her life choices

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Ginge used to love going for rides in dad’s truck, but mom’s car is way roomier. Buuuut mom’s car wouldn’t start this morning, and the pups had to take a trip, so into the truck they went. Ginger’s face says it all!


Today is all about Rico!

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Today is all about Rico, because it’s his rescueversary! 3 years ago today, Dan sent me a text mentioning that his boss had found a litter of puppies in a box on the side of the highway and was looking for foster homes. I said…quote “if you mean foster for 298487 days, then YES!!” He said “we’ll see.” Famous last words. We’d noticed how Roxy was a little withdrawn because Ginger never bonded to her, so they basically just co-existed. We brought her with us to pick out her new sibling when she had a sudden bout of shyness. A sweet tiny boy came over to sniff her, and then sat with her while she hid under the chair. She eventually came out from under it to play a bit, and we decided to bring the little guy home with us. He had been pretty malnourished, but would give up his food to his siblings. He bonded to us instantly, especially GINGER! She was not thrilled, as she never had a mothering instinct. Poor Rico struggled so much the first few months, but eventually settled into a routine and grew more confident. And shockingly, despite being completely annoyed by him all the time, Ginge eventually grew to actually like his attention and kisses.

Now that it’s been almost a year since we moved from Puerto Rico to Alaska, Ri has definitely adapted well. He can hang out in the backyard without panicking over street noises, he LOVES snow, and enjoys the fireplace in the winter. Plus, by saving him, we became best friends with his rescuers, and eventually started working with a rescue organization and fostered more pups while we were in PR. He’s our special little boy! We even celebrated today with PIZZA!




It’s been 6 months post amp!

It’s been 6 months already! Ginge is doing pawsome, and Rico is SO HAPPY he can still attack her with kisses. Roxy the bodyguard is standing by to pull Rico away if he gets too crazy, though.
